Diamine Red Dragon (80ml Bottled Ink) is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 220.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful Ink! I am just joining this mad world of fountain pens and this is the first "third-party" ink I have used. I am using a Lamy Joy and the refillable Z24 ink cartridge. This ink is beautiful and dries very quickly, which is an essential characteristic for ink if you are left-handed. And if you're looking for something for a love letter, this ink makes you look like the classiest person on the planet. It's saturated enough to be very modern and lively, but deep and rich enough in color to evoke a classic feel. As much as it is timeless, it definitely brings with it a feel of an older more romantic more simple world, without looking like an antique.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Shade of Dark Red I recently purchased Red Dragon to compliment the Oxblood I have been enjoying for a couple of months now. I wanted something just a shade or two lighter than Oxblood, but not something bright red. This fit the bill for me. While Oxblood is like dark, dried blood, this has more of a fresh blood quality. Definitely more red, but not true red. This ink also has more shading than Oxblood. It can also appear lighter or darker, depending on how wet you have your nib adjusted. If you're looking for a nice dark red that still retains some true red, this will do it for you. Like all Diamine inks, it is well behaved in all my pens.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally, a red I like! When I first started getting into fountain pens, I was also about to start teaching again. I started looking for a red ink I liked for grading, and I was not satisfied with any I had tried (Pilot Varsity Red, Diamine Matador, Diamine Classic Red, Anderson Appleton Red...). I wasn't sure what I was looking for in my red ink to know what direction I should take. Then, when I told a friend I was looking for a red for my Montegrappa Game of Thrones Targaryen, she suggested this one. Boy, am I glad she did! It matches the pen beautifully, and it is so gorgeous. Two and a half years later, I have a red ink for grading.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is an excellent red ink! This ink is a deep rich red color to my eye. Definitely lighter in shade than Diamine's Oxblood which to my eye has more of a brownish or purpleish tone to it. Red Dragon by contrast is a stand out red, very saturated, and pretty well-behaved. This is not a typical "stop sign" type of red that you might find in a disposable rollerball or ball point. But it is a deep rich red. I do most of my writing on basic white office paper, the kind you may find in just about any copy machine. And this ink absorbs well into this kind of paper but still has a nice presence on the paper. I also don't notice any visible shading. Another very nice ink from Diamine!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A rich, blood red. This was one of my first ink purchases, and it's certainly as vibrant a red as the swab suggests! There's a complexity and richness to this hue of red-- brown and purple hues within this ink make it stand out from the basic reds in other companies' standard line-ups (Waterman and Sheaffer come to mind). The only downside I found with this ink is that it takes more effort to clean it out of my pens than most other inks. Of course, there's also the point that red isn't as conservative as black, blue, or blue-black, but that's kind of a given-- this isn't an everyday ink.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A pleasant surprise I have this ink in my red Noodler non-flex piston-fill Nib Creaper right now so my review is current to use. I had this ink way back in the spring when I started with fountain pens. Then it was lost in all the new stuff I had to take in! But I decided to re-visit it with my last ink order and am glad I did. This is a very dark, rich red and as such is quite different from my other two reds, Sheaffer Red and J. Herbin's Rouge Hematite. It is a somewhat dry ink by my standards but that's fine. I like to use it for making notes in page margins. One of Diamine's home runs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A wonderful color and ink! This is one of my favorite inks. I mostly use it in my Impressa(Gunmetal) with a medium nib. As others have said it is a darker red, however it still retains the attention grabbing properties that most people want in a red. In my experience it's been a well behaved ink, even on cheaper notebook/copy paper. I've seen little to no feathering, but noticed some ghosting on the cheaper papers. If you enjoy this red but looking for something not as dark, I would highly recommend Diamine Matador. Alternatively, if you want something darker, try Oxblood. As always, items arrived surprisingly quick and expertly entombed in packing materials. If you're debating, just GET IT! You won't be disappointed.
